Improving our Tour page and our help center pages has been long in the works, in particular our Asking and Answering pages. Some already existing posts about this are:

However, those are mostly outdated, and could do with some modernisation. We recently got confirmation by Catija (a Community Manager at Stack Exchange) that, if we provided the texts, Stack Exchange is happy to update our help center.

This leaves us with 2 questions:

  • Which pages need updating? and,
  • What should those pages say?

This question is intended to address the first question. Please suggest, in answers below, which pages should be changed, and some basic justifications for why they aren't applicable to the site in their current form. Highly voted proposals will be spun out into separate questions under the tag, with answers to those questions being drafts for the pages.

There is no right answer in questions, which make up 85% of all questions. This page should also explain what acceptance means for non- questions.
